I was feeling much better again on Monday since being so ill the week before. Mommy was still recovering, but as a major treat Mommy took me to the Haahoo (Delta) Park where I hadn’t been in ages. It was a chilly morning but a great deal of fun.

Tuesday was a very quiet day for me, but Wednesday the excitement picked up. Daddy let the cat out the bag in the morning saying that Aunty Birgitt and Uncle Wayne were coming to stay for a while. I was thrilled and couldn’t wait for the evening. I did immediately start with a question though, “Why is Aunty Birgitt your sister?”

The day was hectic for Mom and I – Wetherlys, after four months, finally delivered Mom and Dad’s new bed. One look at it and I couldn’t understand why it would take four months to make, and weeks of Dad screaming at them. We then moved furniture around and prepared the guest room. Daddy arrived home first in the evening, looking all ‘cosmopolitan’. He’s taken to public transport like a fish to water. When he has business in Centurion or Pretoria, or has to go to the airport, he walks up to the bus stop which takes him to the train station. From there he grabs the Gautrain to his destination.

Finally, after lots of waiting, Aunty Birgitt and Uncle Wayne arrived. Big hugs were dished out and we chatted and chatted. Once Aunty Birgitt and Uncle Wayne had opened their suitcases there were presents for me. I was thrilled! Lots of flying and spinning things and a super rocket! We had a great dinner together catching up.

Thursday we bid Daddy farewell and Mom, Aunty Birgitt, Uncle Wayne and I headed out to the Ernest Ullmann Park where Uncle Wayne and I played with my rocket. It was huge fun! Uncle Wayne got showered on by ‘rocket fuel’ (water) but I managed to run away every time. It was so much fun we had to Video Skype Dad at work to show him what we were up to.

We all had a really nice dinner together in the evening.

On Friday morning we all headed to Fegos at Morningside Shopping Centre for breakfast. It was really fun and relaxed. Afterwards we wandered around the centre. I remembered that I had saved lots of pocket money, so I bought Buckie for Jake and the Neverland Pirates. It was awesome. When we got home I told Dad to let Santa know that he could take it off my Christmas list!

In the afternoon Granny arrived and she, Mom and I went to OT together with Lauren. It felt like forever as it was an extra long session. In the evening we all decided to splurge on KFC. We all went to bed really late.

On Saturday morning I couldn’t wait for Aunty Birgitt and Uncle Wayne to wake up to start some playing again. After a play, Mom, Dad and I headed off to Pilates. I did all the exercises with the help of our instructor, Freddie. Back home we spent the afternoon outdoors as it was a beautiful day. Daddy and I did the pool stuff and Mom worked on the garden a little.

In the evening Aunty Birgitt and Uncle Wayne went out with friends and Mom, Dad and I had an early evening.

Sunday Daddy slept late and Mom and I started playing really early. Aunty Birgitt and Uncle Wayne had to go to their talk and we only saw them in the evening again. Mom, Dad and I played up a storm. We brought all my cars and tracks downstairs and Daddy built everyone for me. I had such a rave. In the evening, once Aunty Birgitt and Uncle Wayne were back, I made Uncle Wayne build trains with me.

Well, that’s it for this week!
